I found this hotel online through the Univ. of San Francisco's website where I was attending a conference. Not being familiar with the city, I needed a trusted recommendation. Lovely, historic hotel feels like being in your grandmother's house. Room was quiet, staff friendly, and location is close to bustling Union Square and Financial District. I will stay here again....

I recently stayed at the Handlery for 4 nights as part of a month long vacation to Alaska, Canada & USA. This was my first time to San Francisco and after reading many reviews, I knew what to expect. This hotel is in a fantastic location right in the heart of Union Square (city center). Despite being right in the... More

We stayed here at the end of our month long holiday from New Zealand...travelling in Canada and Alaska. First time in San Francisco so the position of this hotel was great being in the middle of Union Square. We stayed in a double room in the historic section of the hotel and initially thought "dark and no view" but actually... More

I recently stayed at the Handlery Hotel for 2 nights in May in a junior king suite. The room was very spacious and looking out over Union Square, which is literally steps away from the Hotel. The staff are helpful, friendly & professional. Bit of street noise in the evenings but we were on the 7th floor and used to... More

Last city on our recent USA holiday from Australia. Overall this hotel was pleasant enough, although getting to our room was a bit of a maze. Rooms were clean and large enough but we couldn't leave balcony doors open as noise from neighbouring building's air conditioning units was too loud. Concierge was very helpful with travelling tips. Hotel is VERY... More

I recently stayed 3 nights with my family. First impression was excellent we were received outside and helped with our luggage by "Jose". The room was comfortable and had the extra amenities you don't usually get. Conviently located near Union Square and easy access to Trolley. It's a keeper!
